I have many years experience of working with anxiety, relationship issues, family problems and depression. As a BACP accredited member I am suitably qualified to work with students on many counselling and psychotherapy courses.
I have a private practice in SW15, two minutes from Putney Main Line Station and a short walk from East Putney underground on the District Line.
Before training in psychotherapy, I had a varied career in education and the NHS, where I worked in Management and Organisation Development. I have also had experience of consultancy work.
I offer short or long term psychotherapeutic work with individuals. I believe the relationship between therapist and patient is an important vehicle for change. My approach is Developmental Jungian. I work with metaphor and dreams, but am also practical and relational.
I am a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology, the IAAP and I am BPC registered.
I am accredited with BACP and the National Counselling Society.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
